    Posted recently. Received this advice to reset Service light on dash (
    Thank you Bob Noble) ...
    turn key to position 1
    push and hold trip odometer button
    turn key to position 2
    hold button for 10 seconds.
    'service' light will blink.
    within 5 seconds turn key off and release button.

    This has not worked. Car is 1998 V70 Torslander. Any other codes that I can
    try?

    Euro car parts sell a tool for resetting this light. It costs £59 plus VAT.
    I have often thought about buying one and advertising to reset them for
    other people for, say, a fiver. It'd undoubtedly soon pay for itself.
    That sort of thing would be fine for me, until something went wrong, and it
    caused a problem somewhere. Main dealers can obviously charge what they like
    for sorting ECU faults.

    Part number for Euro tool is : 400 66 0031.
    They also do a tool kit which included 3 resetting tools for
    Volvo/Volkswagen-Audi/BMW.
    This kit costs £179 + Vat, and is part number 400 77 0020.
    You may have trouble finding the tool listed on their website. Mail them,
    and they'll send you a catalogue.
    If you buy a tool, and you live anywhere near peterborough, please come and
    reset my service light. I'll pay a fiver!!
